Randomly watched this because I missed it at the time. This made me remember why I hate smark crowds. Two of the best, most consistent workers in the company beat the living shit out of each other in a big gimmick match and sections of the crowd are trying to get themselves over chanting for Cena, Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, NXT etc. That they hate Reigns is well known and the arguments are played out but what exactly is the reason for smarks hating Sheamus? And imagine being the tragic dork who chants ECW at a table spot in 2015.
Anyway, I digress. This was an awesome wrestling match. Fought like a real nasty street fight rather than with loads of climbing attempts, I love how viciously both men throw strikes. I also love how Reigns ragdolls when he's beaten down. Some nasty, nasty bumps here - particularly a Samoan drop through a ladder, a White Noise through a table and Sheamus just being pelted into a pile of stacked furniture on the ramp. The superman punch spot at the end was awesome too. Reigns should have won after that instead of the interference BS. When they were actually teasing finishes at the end, the kids at ringside were super into it. Can they just make up the crowds please? I wish Reigns worked in a different era because he has put in some incredible babyface working performances, poor booking aside. The work deserves a better crowd.
